A moment with One of Our In-House Lawyers
Ben Turin, General Counsel, shares what it’s like to work in Oorah’s legal department:
(O) What kind of cases do you work on?
(BT) Our department works on many diverse projects! These include business transactions, litigation matters, regulatory compliance and tax research.
(O) How does the legal team work?
(BT) Our attorneys work on certain projects on their own, but in most cases we interface extensively with other team members at Oorah. We also seek advice from outside counsel when we need assistance with a particular specialized area of the law.
(O) What’s it like to work for Oorah?
(BT) It’s a great environment! It’s great for work-life balance, which can be especially challenging for lawyers who often have to travel to the city. It’s the perfect opportunity for someone who is looking for an intellectually challenging work environment, but wants to remain closer to home, both literally and figuratively.

A moment with our PPC Account Manager
Penina S, one of Oorah/Kars4Kids’ PPC Account Managers, gives a sneak peek into what her job is all about:
(K4K) First things first, what do you actually do?
(PS) I’m part of the PPC department; we take care of Pay Per Click online advertising. We create ad campaigns based off how people use Google and other search engines. There’s a lot of analyzing and making reports based off the campaigns we set up. We also make sure to stay on top of this dynamic industry; with technology, things keep changing.
(K4K) What’s unique about PPC that makes it different than any old office job?
(PS) It’s cool and you get to work with Google! We see the exact words that people search for. We can tell if someone used a mobile device or a computer. We can even tell if people used Google voice; I’ll see that they said “Okay Google try Kars4kids” for example, instead of just searching for Kars4kids.
Another great thing about the job is that we have leeway to make decisions about campaigns. We analyze results and can decide what to work on at any given time to improve an ad.
(K4K) What’s the ultimate goal of PPC?
(PS) We try to get as many car donations for Kars4Kids for the least amount of money. It’s amazing to see how if I make a small change in one of our ad campaigns, percentages could be that much higher. The work I do affects the amount of car donations we get, so it can be really fulfilling!

A moment with Our Video Producer/Director
Yocheved Zelishovsky, Video producer and director, tells us what it’s like to work for Oorah:
(K4K) Why do Oorah and Kars4Kids produce videos?
(YZ) Video serves as an engagement trigger—it encourages people to interact with our content. We’re not a film or entertainment company, but today, video works. It’s great for articulating what an organization does, while also a smart way to emphasize a call-to-action. In addition, video is a great tool to making incredible, touching and personal stories about our organization giving us a way to illustrate the types of people or situations where our programs are making an impact.
(K4K) How do you get ideas for your videos?
(YZ) We begin by coming up with an interesting concept. Sometimes it’s a creative inspiration, sometimes we follow trends to figure out the science of why a video went viral. Coming up with the idea is the easy part! The real work starts when we begin planning, which is so much more than what you see! There’s casting our models, setting up the location and props, and everything that goes into a video production. The more we plan the smoother the actual shooting day will be.
(K4K) What happens next?
(YZ) After shooting the video, it’s up to the creative stage; editing! Editing a video and turning raw footage into a compelling piece can take anywhere from 1 day to 2 weeks. Anyone who’s a video editor can understand this! 10 hours can feel like 20 minutes when in the middle of an exciting project. There’s always something going on in the multimedia department.

A moment with A Veteran Web Designer
RR, a web designer who has been with us for over 15 years, shares her experience working at Oorah/Kars4kids:
(K4K) What kind of websites do you design?
(RR) I create websites and landing pages for new Kars4Kids campaigns and work on making changes and tweaking websites that are already in existence. One recent fun example is this site I designed for a campaign we launched this summer: kars4kids.org/drive-human. It has a lot of interactive elements so it was fun to bring all the components together. Things are always being adjusted based on A/B testing and analytics.
(K4K) What goes on behind the scenes of the websites we visit online?
(RR) There’s a lot of planning that goes into it – how it’ll look and what we want to include. I interact with different departments in the organization to understand their needs and what we’re trying to convey on the site. I also get input from the marketing department on the psychology of color and placement, the call to action, etc. It’s really important to make sure it makes sense from the users’ point of view, both the user interface, and the user experience.
Once I design the site, I test it out on all different devices to confirm that it looks good on everything, not just on a desktop. We have an increasing number of mobile visitors and we want them to have the same positive and easy user experience, too.
(K4K) Why do you enjoy working for Oorah/Kars4Kids?
(RR) Because it’s a big organization, the sites I work on are seen by thousands and that gives me an accomplishing feeling.
Also, at Oorah there isn’t just room for growth, there’s time for it, too. We’re encouraged to stay updated on the latest trends and new techniques, which is to my benefit because I gain a lot of new skills as I’m working. Whatever knowledge you come in with, you’ll come out with a whole lot more!

Do you want a full-time job helping people get married?! The Rebbetzins Program wants YOU!
Strong administrative, communication, and interpersonal skills needed. Must have extensive social media and computer experience and abilities. If you’ve got those skills and you can plan, coordinate, arrange, and oversee technical details and logistics, this is the job for you!
A moment with Oorah’s Rebbetzins Network Director
Mrs. Raizelle Serebrowski, Rebbetzins Network Director, shares what the Rebbetzins program is all about:
(O) The Rebbetzins Network is a unique program, what’s it all about?
(BT) The Rebbetzins program helps singles with baal teshuva backgrounds throughout the entire shidduch process. Shidduchim is hard enough to navigate; when someone is unfamiliar with all the nuances in shidduchim, it’s even harder. We have dozens of volunteer shadchanim and, as of today, 736 singles. Our program is about helping them through the process. B”H over 733 individuals who have been helped through the Rebbetzins program have since gotten engaged. Our mentors and dating coaches have given them, and continue to give, chizuk to those in the parshah.
(O) What does the actual job entail?
(BT) The job is all about coordinating and maintaining relationships between singles and shadchanim. It’s a lot of facilitating and ensuring that everything’s running smoothly; generally making great things happen! There are periodic on-the-field interactions through our annual retreat and shidduch events throughout the year. The best part is working behind the scenes for a great cause!
(O) What do you think about the shidduch crisis- do you feel its effects on the Rebbetzins program?
(BT) I knew that would be coming! I’ve certainly met more girls than boys and our database shows it. That being said, dating isn’t a superficial process. It’s about marriage and building a home together. I think that if every single person (pun intended) is invested in getting married and has the right mindset, there won’t be any “crisis”.
